February 2 Pull List

February 2nd, 2011 - Comments Off on February 2 Pull List - Comics

One of my favorite bi-weekly titles is out today… Brightest Day!! I have to say that having Brightest Day and Generation Lost coming out every other week has been great. Both series will be soon be coming to an end but looking at all the upcoming Flashpoint releases I should be grateful. One limited series at long last finishes today, Time Masters: Vanishing Point. This series should have finished alongside of the Return of Bruce Wayne but both ran late. Speaking of late… Batman Odyssey is never on time.

Flashpoint Info

February 1st, 2011 - Comments Off on Flashpoint Info - Comics

Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert and Sandra Hope are creating an epic five issue series, one with a scope so big and ambitious that there will be fifteen mini series expanding on the events, along with several important one shots.

Last Friday they announced fourteen mini series’ titles based on this year’s Flash based event titled Flashpoint. It seems that the story is based around the Reverse Flash changing some key moments in DC’s history so things don’t happen the way that they did. Here’s a list of the announced titles:

Whatever Happened to Gotham City?

FLASHPOINT: BATMAN KNIGHT OF VENGEANCE #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: DEADMAN AND THE FLYING GRAYSONS #1-#3

Whatever Happened to the World’s Greatest Super Villains?

FLASHPOINT: CITIZEN COLD #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: DEATHSTROKE & THE CURSE OF THE RAVAGER #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: THE OUTSIDER #1-#3

Whatever Happened to the Aliens?

FLASHPOINT: ABIN SUR THE GREEN LANTERN #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: PROJECT: SUPERMAN #1-#3

Whatever Happened to Science & Magic?

January 26th, 2011 - Comments Off on January 26 Pull List - Comics

Another week and more great reading on the way. At last the final set of Blackest Night Action Figures is released. Up next is the Brightest Day sets starting this summer. I have to say that reading about Lex Luthor the past number of month’s in Action Comics has been great. I’m really looking forward to issue 900. As most comic readers know, this week also marks the death of a member of the Fantastic Four. I don’t get FF monthly but I have to get this one. I’ll actually pick up the 4 issues leading into it if I can.

SLAM-A-RAMA Issue 3 Available This Wednesday

January 23rd, 2011 - Comments Off on SLAM-A-RAMA Issue 3 Available This Wednesday - Comics


Do you like reading comics? Do you like old school wrestling? If you answered yes to either or both of these questions then you have to check out SLAM-A-RAMA by Halifax’s own Dave Howlett. Available for purchase at Strange Adventures this coming Wednesday!

Here’s a write-up from the comic’s website to give you a little idea of what the comic is all about:

An online graphic novel set during the gaudy glory days of 1980s professional wrestling, SLAM-A-RAMA chronicles the events of the greatest night in sports entertainment history. Over the course of one fateful evening, a diverse cast of characters–some at the top of their game, others on the downward slope of their careers–will be tested by bone-crushing battles within the ring, as well as the harrowing personal dramas that await them backstage.

X-Men: First Class – First Picture

January 18th, 2011 - Comments Off on X-Men: First Class – First Picture - Comics, Movies

UPDATE JAN. 19: I’ve updated the leaked photo of the cast with a higher quality one. Director Matthew Vaughn says that it was not a pre-approved image. Obviously there was some confusion between Vaughn and Fox over this one as it was released by Fox.

MSN posted an image earlier today from the upcoming X-Men: First Class movie. The post has since been removed. Thankfully for us though… once it’s online it never goes away. I don’t know about you but I’m not all that excited about it yet. I’m hoping when we finally see a trailer for it that it will put my doubts about the film to rest.

Left to right, we see: Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, January Jones as Emma Frost, Jason Flemyng as Azazel, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Lucas Till as Havoc, Zoe Kravitz as Angel Salvadore, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and James McAvoy as Charles Xavier.
